I'm wondering if anyone has used one of these gopro camera mounted extensions for their sleds that are out there and what their opinion is of them? One brand would be "The Arm" from Gopole, Eye on Mine carbon fiber extender tube, and the Smatree gopro mount that extends from 7 to 12 inches. I need to know which one would bounce around the least and would be the best bang for my buck, because the Eye of Mine is pretty pricey. I thought about building one, but I would rather just buy one and be done with it. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

I use "the arm" go pole. It vibrates at idle, but once you throttle up it smooths out. Works well!

VuVantage!!

The inventor is a sledder and a veteran (and a friend of mine).
He buys the components and assembles them himself in the garage.

Get the backpack mount for the over-the-shoulder 3rd person POV.

I use a Manfrotto variable friction arm with super clamp. It's a bullet proof setup, but cost a little more than 'gopro' specific setups as it's pro camera gear.. I've wrecked into numerous trees with this, put a good 50+ miles on my setup and still going strong.

Check my latest vid for some angles with it. All shots from the sled are with Manfrotto. Plus it's hella fun to say.
